Celebrate With Us!
Please join the NC State Graduate School in celebrating the fourth annual Graduate Education Week. Festivities will begin on Monday (March 18) and continue through Saturday (March 23).
We begin our week-long celebration on Monday afternoon with the Outstanding Teaching Assistant Awards ceremony at the McKimmon Center. The TA awards rewards excellence in graduate student teaching and recognized instructional efforts in the laboratory and classroom. On Tuesday, show support for your fellow grad students by attending the 8th Annual Graduate Student Research Symposium.
There are also a variety of informative seminars and workshops scheduled throughout the week. Service Raleigh on Saturday, March 23, brings the 2013 Graduate Education Week to a close. Service Raleigh is an annual city wide day of service where volunteers from the university, as well as surrounding communities, undertake a variety of projects which provide needed assistance to local organizations. Service Raleigh requires registration and will close with 2000 volunteers.
For a full listing of events, please see the Graduate Education Week web site.
Graduate Education Week highlights graduate education, as well as the great work of our graduate students. In addition, the week will serve as an opportunity to attract prospective students and legitimize the need for state funding.
The University North Carolina system offers more than 700 master's and 200 doctoral and professional degree programs. From agriculture to creative writing to nuclear engineering, graduate studies in North Carolina drive the production of knowledge and contribute substantially to our state's economic and social prosperity.
Graduate education benefits the state of North Carolina in a number of ways.
